Jury Duty Definition

Jury duty pay is a legal requirement in some states where employers are expected to pay employees out on jury duty.

Jury Duty Extended Definition
Jury duty pay is a form of income protection in which employers in some states (e.g., New York) are required to pay their employees for their time serving jury duty.

The amount of pay will differ from state to state, and the consequences for failing to pay mandatory jury duty pay also varies. However, states may also excuse employers from jury duty pay if it is found that it can cause financial hardships.
